One of the stars of the lineup (yet also one of the most expensive as well), the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines checks in as 87% Cabernet, 10% Petit Verdot and 3% Syrah, from vines planted in the 1970s, that spent 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Big, rich, chocolaty and concentrated, with tons of blackcurrant, singed toast, vanilla bean and smoked herbs, it has full-bodied richness, building tannin and the overall balance and purity to evolve gracefully for 10-15 years.

(50% from a 1972 planting in Sagemoor vineyard, the rest from Champoux vineyard blocks planted in 1972 and 1981): Dark ruby-red. Captivating aromas of cassis, blueberry, black plum, licorice, tobacco leaf and espresso, lifted by high-toned spices and flowers. Wonderfully rich, sweet and plush on the palate, offering terrific concentration and breadth to its flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate and spices. Finishes with substantial noble tannins and slowly building, sneaky length. A superb showing today, but this wine has the balance for a long life in bottle. (ST)
